This should be a $299 deal of the day Thanksgiving day this year if Amazon continues how they have done the past few years. If you need/want one now this is a great price! TU!

I bought one for $500 back in December. Sounds great, handles any format I've thrown at it so far. It was a definite upgrade from my old HTR-5990.

The 679 has full 4K capability (4;4:4, HDR, etc.). If you don't care about Atmos (and few should) you might as well pick up this model.

is it better than Denon AVR x2200sw by any means in quality of sound produced? I bought 2200 few weeks ago for the same price but not very excited about the sound production in my 12x12 room itself.

I am happy with mine, but I think sound is probably much more involved than a receiver

I was looking at this and the 2200 or 1200 myself. What was your experiences? These models are some of the only ones giving us enough 2.2 ports for me to feel like I'm not shooting myself in the foot.

I was leaning heavily on the denons.....

looking for a 4k receiver that allows for separate playback in zone 2. my onkyo won't play digital signals in zone 2 but it looks like this one does.

Appears to have all kinds of features too (airplay, etc.)

Any reason not to pull the trigger on this? Risk of being obsolete soon?

Not getting obsolete soon but RX-V681 will hit the market in few weeks if not days. It has Atmos if you care and enhancements on GUI part. Other than that Yamaha makes solid consumer grade receivers. They are known for longevity relatively speaking.

I picked up the Denon x2200w and really like it. It was really easy to setup and provides great sound on my Definitive 5.1 surround. I know it's not a close comparison, but I upgraded from a Yamaha HTR-5940 and I noticed a significant improvement in sound quality.

No preouts, no Atmos this should be $100 cheaper...
